As for the Meteor 350 Supernova, this variant comes in two shades - dual-tone brown and dual-tone blue.
Recent spy photos also suggest that the bike will get a secondary TFT colour display offering turn-by-turn navigation. Given the fact that it gets navigation, there is also the possibility that the motorcycle could come with Bluetooth connectivity as well. There will also be the main instrument cluster that comes with an analogue speedometer and LED panel for trip metre and other essential information.
